Overview
Nominated for five ACADEMY AWARDS® including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor, The Verdict is "stirring, entertaining cinema" (Us)! This Blu-ray™ release is packed with compelling special features including on-camera interviews with OSCAR® Winner Paul Newman* and legendary director Sidney Lumet and is the perfect way to experience "one of the finest courtroom movies ever made" (New York)! Frank Galvin (Newman) is a boozy washed-up attorney with a losing streak a mile long. So when he's handed a lucrative out-of-court settlement, everyone expects him to take the money and run. But Frank is tired of running. In a desperate bid to reclaim his self-respect, he recklessly brings the case to court – only to discover that if finding the whole truth is a little like trial and error, then finding real justice is a lot life trial by fire.

*Actor, The Color of Money, 1986.
